About Hina Luna

Hina Luna is a creative inquiry into bridging the connections between body, altar, and home; a devotion to and honoring of simple pleasures, personal talismans, kitchen table culture, and ancestral connection.


Conceptual inspiration

Behind the name The moon is my steady muse and the namesake of this heart-work. ‘Hina’ honors the moon deity of the place I call my home in Hawai’i and her plant body representations, and ‘Luna’ is a nod to the moon spirit of my own Italian ancestry. The name itself is a bridge between homes. I find inspiration in the moon’s gentle, quiet power; a light in the darkness; ever-evolving through its phases; in communion with the waters of both earth and body.

Working concepts Through the symbology, I explore what it means to consider the body as both a home for spirit and an altar to be tended to for the sake of our selves and honoring our ancestors. My intention is to cultivate a relationship with the world around us — the seen and the unseen.

The intention | things that are both beautiful + purposeful

Hina Luna’s shop offerings of studio-made goods and curated treasures from fellow makers are offerings to the altar of your spirit, body, and home.  They are both talismans and tools to be interacted with daily that celebrate simple pleasures, quality craftsmanship, a life lived slowly and intentionally, and honoring our ancestors by caring for ourselves.

All items are created or curated with the intention to honor both people and planet. Natural materials, ethical creation processes, and a balance of function and form are the foundation of this creative endeavor. 

Studio offerings

Original works from the Hina Luna home studio have included plant dyed and block printed altar cloths, aprons, linen pillowcases, table and kitchen linens, annual moon calendars, zines, and the occasional wearable garments.

Studio releases will be announced via newsletter. Moon Circle mailing list subscribers will receive a special passcode that allows early access to the shop before the release has gone live for the public. Follow on Instagram for previews leading up to releases.


I am honored to welcome the works of fellow creatives into the shop that align with the intention and ethos of Hina Luna. Some of these goods include tarot and oracle decks, beeswax candles, guided journals, and independent publications and are brought into this space in small batches. Hina Luna prioritizes sourcing products made by Hawaiian, women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ makers and artisans. As a solo-owner, woman-led creative business, it is important to me to invest in these communities of makers and provide a platform that amplifies them and their works and that contributes to more equitable wealth distribution.

People and Planet

All items are created or curated with the intention to honor both people and planet. Natural materials, ethical creation processes, and a balance of function and form make up the foundation from which I create and curate from.

For Hina Luna’s textile goods, quality organic and carefully chosen second-hand natural fabrics are used in combination with sustainable plant dyes.

Hina Luna’s collection of print work is created with small independently owned print shops.

Curated offerings are carefully chosen for their mindful creation practices, natural materials, and the individuals that make them.

With consideration of our earth, orders are lovingly packaged and shipped in biodegradable, plastic-free, and reused materials that can quickly and safely reintegrate back into the earth.

My processes embrace the slow movement and live by the philosophy of having less, choosing better quality, and making things last. I believe these philosophies are easily practiced when we foster a connection to the tangible items we choose to surround ourselves with.

Where is Hina Luna based?

I create from my home studio on Hawai’i island, land of the Kānaka Maoli. Hina Luna is currently online only.
